[torqueusers] init_network failed dis and Unauthorized request

Thanks for the quick reply.

OK, so I uninstalled and reconfigured like this:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-rcp=scp 

Then I did
pbs_server -t create

And finally:
root at homathko:/usr/local/torque-2.2.1# qmgr homathko
Max open servers: 4
Qmgr: set server_name = homathko1
qmgr: Illegal object type: server_name.

I am not sure what is going on. Both names (homathko and homathko1) are 
resolved properly on the machine.

Thanks, Jan
